If it\'s only two months old it may have a defective charging cable or adapter. If it\'s a new purchase and you can return it. To check to see if it might be the adapter and not the charging cable you have a few cheap ways to test this out.
General charging recommendations.
If you get power leave it on charge at least 3+ hours. This is the minimum time required if the battery is totally drained. If the Nook turns itself on during this process manually turn it off. The battery charges faster and more deeply if it\'s truely powered down. Charging more than 3 hours won\'t hurt it. In fact some manufacturers claim leaving thier products on charge for an additional hour after the charging light glows green is good as it leaves a slightly deeper charge on the battery. Also I believe leaving it alone for that hour allows it to cool the battery. Most manufacturers also recommend tottaly draining the battery at least once a month and then fully recharging it 1+ hours after charging light is green. They claim this helps the battery maintain a healthy charge and extends the battery life. Simply disconnect any charging cables, turn the unit on and just let it set. Don\'t touch it peroid just leave it alone until it turns off because the battery is totally drained. Then just plug it in and leave it. Only if the unit automatically turns itself on do you manually turn it back off.
Well that\'s about in in keeping the battery life and charge at its maximum.
If your AC power adapter has gone south there are only three ways to get around this. 1. Purchase a generic AC to USB adapter. 2. Purchase a genetic DC to USB adapter. Most of these can be cheaply purchased at most drug stores ect.. these days. You can even get DC to USB ones at dollar stores such as Dollar Tree. Good way to maintain your battery if your AC one goes south or you lose house current.
One other way to charge your battery is to plug the USB cable into your computer. Some manufacturers don\'t recommend this as this more often than not doesn\'t fully tank up your battery.
You can also get replacement charging cables at the same place you got the adapters. Places such as Walgreens, or CVS often have these at around five dollars a pop.
Connect the AC power adapter to the laptop and confirm that the AC power indicator is on (I wish you stated the brand of laptop). If the AC power indicator is not on, try and get a working AC power adapter for your laptop and connect it to your laptop.
With the AC power adapter connected, you can power on your laptop. If the laptop powers on from the OS you can see if the Battery is charging or not. If the laptop does not power with the AC power adapter connected, then the power port of the laptop is bad.
However, if all these are okay and the battery still does not charge, the battery is faulty and will need to be replaced.
First try using a different ac adapter/power cord.If after trying that it won't power up it only leaves the power board where the power button is located may be bad or the power jack where the ac adapter/power cord plugs into the laptop may be bad.Alot of the time when the ac adapter/power cord gets weak or stops working at all will cause it to not charge or not turn on even plugged in.
If YES, and it doesn't charge the battery, but it turns ON the laptop it means that the battery is the one not holding a charge.
If NO. Try to change the power cord that goes to the wall (that part is detachable) with good known power cord. If it does the same then definitely there's a problem with the ac adapter. You can contact the Toshiba sales department (1-800-8674422) or toshiba direct (1-800-3160920).
If the computer powers ON, both ac adapter and battery are detected but no display, then the problem is the system board.
shut down computer - unplug power cord from laptop - remove the battery from laptop - plug Ac adapter into computer and Ac outlet (wall)
turn on computer
if computer does not turn on, replace the AC adapter and cord - then place battery back into computer
plug in new Ac adapter and cord - recharge battery - if orange light stays on after 4-6 hours of charging battery, you need new battery as well - replace battery, charge it up and it should be fine
if you have attempted these steps before and no change occurs, then you may have issue with power connection in computer - locate a service centre to replace power connection on computer
First, you need to check the one that you got for replacement is the correct adapter for your system. If it matches with the old one, make sure that the ac adapter light (LED) is on when you plug it the wall outlet only. When you plug it in the portable and if your ac adapter LED blinks out (turns off) then the motherboard needs to be replaced or else the ac adapter is not working and needs another replacement. Call Dell and have it replaced if you just bought it.
